Here are 5 running mixes by DJ AM. Posted for free by the man himself!! RIP.

I don't know about you but I am big into listening to music when I am running. I find that DJ mixes work well for running because they are continuous music. Generally, they are built around a theme and they are a cohesive yet evolving mix of music. In other words they build up in intensity and also mellow over a few tracks instead of jumping from Punk to Reggae (both of which I enjoy running to). Here are 5 amazing mixes by our late friend DJ AM. Each of these mixes are at least an hour long. These are true gems. Great for running or hitting the gym too. To get them on your ipod or mp3 player, follow the download instructions and then drag them into your itunes library or whatever music program you use. FYI, DJ AM posted these mixes himself for people to enjoy for free. The last mix was made about a month before he passed away.

Runner's can benefit from biking...

Here's the deal. Studies have shown that many runner's neglect their leg muscles because they believe they're getting their leg work in while running (not true!). Stronger legs will make you a better runner. Check out the Tour de France Site or the Amgen Tour of California Site to get psyched. Lance Armstrong twittered today that he was going to ride in the Tour de California again this year.

Online Running Journal

Check out this sweet SITE that will help you document your runs. Lost motivation? Check your running journal from the last marathon training you completed to catch the bug again. I make a note or two about what I was thinking about on each run. It's interesting to see what you used as "mental fuel" for runs in the past. Isn't there a saying... "To know your future you must know your past."

Have you checked out your antioxidant intake lately?

Those things are important!! Go to to make sure you are on track.

North Face Endurance Challenge

Growing up in San Francisco and spending a lot of winter time in Lake Tahoe I have a always been a big North Face fan. If you are into or want to get into some serious trail running check out the North Face Endurance Challenge. They offer training groups with all star coaches in each region. Has anyone ran in one of these events?

Undefeated Rowing!?

Check this ARTICLE. This lady Roz Savage was depressed and wanted more out of life so she decided to row ACROSS THE ATLANTIC! Some of the stuff she says about what she went through is reminiscent of long distance running.

Pace Bands

If you've run a marathon recently you have probably seen people wearing or seen the booth at the expo for pace bands. Get yours HERE!
